Piously Preachy

I cannot help but think that other brothers love to compare They study you and I and hope we aren’t aware They look at us with disgust and quote their tattered Bible Finding reasons to belittle God’s children as if their judgment is viable Pick a particular sin, kind sir and pick on me today Pick one that you’re not guilty of and declare how … Continue reading Piously Preachy

I’ve been humbly accepting of the way things are lately. With that being said, things are kind of all over the place. My faith, my family turmoil, my patience, my frustrations and my ability to care all that much about the overall impact it all is making on me (and mind you, I’m still being kind to others around me, regardless of my inner struggle), … Continue reading All The Lovely People
